Maro Engel made use of all the possibilities offered by the new Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series as standard: the most powerful AMG V8 series engine ever with 537 kW (730 hp), the sophisticated aerodynamics and the extensive suspension adjustment options. For example, the front splitter made of visible carbon fibre was extended in the "Race" position, and the lower and upper wing blades of the rear spoiler were each adjusted in the middle position. The adjustable AMG coilover suspension with adaptive adjustment damping was lowered by five millimeters at the front and three millimeters at the rear to further enhance the venturi effect of the front diffuser. The camber was adjusted to the maximum possible values of minus 3.8 degrees at the front axle and minus 3.0 degrees at the rear. In the case of the adjustable anti-roll bars, racing professional Engel opted for the hardest of the three possible settings, and the 35-year-old adjusted the nine-stage AMG traction control between positions six and seven, depending on the section of the track. The AMG GT Black Series customer can also take advantage of all these variation options. This also applies to the MICHELIN Pilot Sport Cup 2 R MO tyres with the "soft compound" compound, which are completely standard equipment and were developed in collaboration with development partner Michelin especially for the top sports car in the AMG GT series. The highest possible level of safety was ensured not only by the standard AMG ceramic high-performance composite brake system, but also by the Track Package with roll-over protection system and four-point safety belts offered as standard equipment.
